Helping you build your dreams at home
Home Extension Builders & Contractors
The majority of our clients come to us with an idea.
“We don’t want to move, we like the area we live in but we’d like to add an extension on the back of the property for our growing family” or “We’ve had to sell my parents house and we’d like to extend our own property so they can come and live with us – can you help?”
The answer to both of these is yes.
Our expertise in property development is second to none. Ashby Facilities have been extension specialists for the last 3 years and worked on a vast amount of bespoke property work. We have the experience and knowledge to design and build projects that leave our customers very happy indeed.
Type of house extensions we build
There are several different developments you can add onto your property. Below are some of the typical extension project enquiries we receive.
A great way of utilising space and can improve your home’s layout. UK building regulations state that you’ll require planning permission if you are going out over three metres from the rear wall of a semi detached house or four metres for a detached.
Similar to a single storey but gives you double the living space. From a cost per metre perspective, money spent on this type of rear extension is less than a single and if you have the space would be something we’d advise to consider and offer more room. Usually a two storey extension cannot be closer than seven metres from the rear property boundary.
Extend out from kitchens, side rooms or garage to create an additional living area or the open plan kitchen you’ve always wanted. A side extension usually runs alongside the side of your property and must only be a single storey, no higher than four metres or wider than half of the original ground floor property. Planning permission may be required.
Similar to the side or rear extensions, this permitted development can be a mix of both or joined. Planning permission may be required and must not extend out by 3metres of the rear back wall.
